Kiln dried wood supplier Certainly Wood, based near Madley in Herefordshire, has just become the first company to have its firewood production approved under the Solid Biomass Assurance Scheme operated by registration body HETAS ( www.hetas.co.uk ).
Nic Snell, Marketing Director of Certainly Wood was presented with their certificate (No. SBAS/1/0001) by Bruce Allen, CEO and Bill Massey, Project Manager at HETAS at one of the company’s recent open days held at their premises on 24th July.
The scheme is intended to provide a benchmark for biomass production and, in the kiln dried logs and seasoned log sectors for which Certainly Wood received its certificate, the scheme takes into account factors like the type, size and moisture content of logs produced. HETAS believe that this will help end users to be confident of the quality of the firewood they are purchasing. Certainly Wood’s kiln dried firewood is created using the company’s uniquely-designed kilns which are powered by a large industrial boiler burning the Company’s own wood waste. “Not only is our wood the eco choice for green woodburner users; we even dry our logs in an environmentally-friendly way” explains Marketing Director, Nic Snell.
The Solid Biomass Assurance Scheme certificate is yet another accolade for this innovative and progressive company.
